Carpet and Health

Carpet Keeps Allergens Out of the Air

Many believe carpet to be negative for asthma and allergies; however, the opposite is true. Research has consistently shown that carpet actually improves indoor air quality in a number of ways.  It acts like a trap, keeping dust and allergens out of the air we breathe.  Simply put, what falls to the carpet (dust, pet dander, and many other particles) tends to stay trapped until it is removed through vacuuming or extraction cleaning.  Smooth floor surfaces allow dust and other allergens to collect and re-circulate into the breathing zone.

Carpet Puts You on Safer Ground

Carpets and rugs provide better traction than other flooring options, which prevent falls. If falls do happen, the softer surface reduces their impact. Whether you are in an office rooms, school, hospital, or other facility, reducing falls and less severe injuries are one more reason carpet is a choice you can feel good about.

Less Noise, More Productivity

Carpet is significantly more efficient at reducing noise when compared with other flooring options. So everyone from employees to students gets a quieter, less distracting environment where they hear more and concentrate better.
